Nicaragua - Culture Smart! The Essential Guide to Customs & Culture Paperback / softback

Part of the Culture Smart! series


More and more travelers are discovering the delights of Nicaragua--a land of lakes and volcanoes.

The image has persisted of a country racked by revolution and war, but the reality awaiting travelers couldn't be more different.

The largest country in Central America, Nicaragua is also one of the most diverse and least explored, with a chain of puffing volcanoes along the Pacific coast, two huge freshwater lakes, important rainforest reserves on the tropical Mosquito Coast, and tiny, picture-postcard Caribbean islands where English Creole is the lingua franca.

Travelers' budgets will stretch further here than in other Latin American destinations, and around every corner, there are cobblestone streets, high-altitude coffee plantations, world-class bird-watching, perfect surf, and Flor de Ca a, the smoothest rum that ever came out of an oak barrel.

Culture Smart! Nicaragua offers readers an insider's view of the country and its people.

It explores Nicaragua's national traditions, turbulent history, tasty local dishes, fun fiestas, and unique cultural expressions.

It arms readers with key phrases in Nica-speak, or Nica ol, so you can break the ice, and provides insights into what the people of Nicaragua are like at home, at play, and in business.
